Abstract

Genes formerly thought to be involved solely in the regulation of life span have increasingly become implicated in the regulation of metabolic processes. Moynihan et al. (2005 [this issue of Cell Metabolism]) now demonstrate that increasing levels of Sirt1 in the pancreatic β cells of mice result in a more efficient glucose handling due to enhanced glucose-stimulated insulin secretion.
